I LOVE SHOPPING FOR SHORTS…said no one ever 🤣 Well, the LIY Team and Ambassadors are here to help. From athletic, to denim, to lounge, and in between – we’ve rounded up our must have shorts for Spring! We hope to make shopping for your new favorite pair of Spring shorts a little less “noooo thank you, return please” and a little more “I can’t wait to wear these!” 🥰🌸

Old Navy Linen-Blend Shorts [true to size – I sized up one for pregnancy] // Black Tee [true to size, wearing in small] // Sandals [size up 5.]

I’ll be the first to admit that shorts are one of the last things I want to wear right now with my expanding bump so when I spotted this linen-blend pair with the elastic waist, I knew they were worth trying. Just as I had hoped, they exceeded expectations and rank high on the comfort list! This bright pink color is so much fun too!

Erin’s Spanx Stretch Twill Shorts [4″ inseam, 5’4, typically a size small or 4, currently 22 weeks pregnant]

Can you tell yet that I have a thing for zero buttons or zippers when it comes to shorts this season!? These SPANX stretch twill shorts are some of my all-time favorites! Available in both 4″ and 6″ inseam, they are stretchy, dressy-looking and require minimal effort to put on [and take off 🤣]

Ashley’s Denim Shorts [3″ inseam, 5’8″, size small or 4/6]

Shorts [true to size] // Shirt // Converse

I’m loving these Aerie denim shorts for this Spring & Summer! The size 6 fits TTS and they feel great on. High waisted with Plenty of room to breathe, while still hugging my curves. My favorite part is the back pocket detail…it’s just different than any other pair I own. The length is perfect in my opinion as I’m a fan of short shorts but these aren’t toooo short to show my cheeks :woozy_face:  Basically, I will be wearing these over & over (&over & over) again once the Summer gets here!!! I can’t wait :hugging_face:

Heather here with my go to shorts as the sun starts shining! These Athleta shorts are a great fit on my 6′ frame and I found them to be true to size. They are super comfortable and you can dress them up or down. Here I’ve paired them with my go to Target tee and sneakers, but I’ll be wearing them with a tank and sandals this spring and summer season as well. My favorite part is these don’t stretch out as you wear them throughout the day.

Debbie here with my favorite workout shorts! These really stay in place and have some support and shaping to them. I got my usual size small. They’re like shape wear but they don’t cut you off anywhere or create more rolls like some shape wear does. I love these! I want more! I’m 5’5” 135 lbs
